  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 can (15oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 bunch scallions (about 6) – both white and green parts, chopped

  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl mash the black beans with the lime juice and cumin. Add the Chipotle sauce.
  3. Add the scallions and roasted red peppers (and liquid) and mix it all together.
  4. Portion into 4 servings – 1 for each wrap. Wrap ’em up and garnish with cilantro. That’s it.

I also wanted to share that I had a great run today! I resumed my 10k Trainer program with Week 8 Day 1: 5 minute warm up, 28 minute run, and 5 minute cool down. I cranked up my “Long Run” playlist on Spotify and off I went (on the treadmill)…

4.07 miles in 38:07

Instead of running at the same pace for 28 minutes, I steadily increased the pace every 5 minutes. By the time I made it to the cool down, I was pouring buckets of sweat!

I also decided to stop worrying about my shoe dilemma. I do have 3 pairs that I like, plus the PF 2s that I pulled from the “retired” pile. I think I can get a few more miles out of them :) Here’s Lucy modeling with the current rotation:

This morning’s weigh in was 115.8 and here’s what I ate today:

  • Dinner: Chipotle Black Bean Wrap with Minute brand Whole Grain Medley
